    Need help identifying this wrist watch

    I tried searching for a brand, but my best bet is that its Christ the biggest swiss jewler.
    In that case who made the watch?
    Is it true lunar phase?
    Thanks.

    Swiss?! Juwelier Christ are actually German (HQ in Hagen, North Rhine Westphalia). The origin is supported by the fact that it has a PUW (Pforzheimer Uhrenwerke) quartz movement inside. They closed down production in 1990 so it is probably a 1980s watch.

    "With more than 70 shops, CHRIST is the biggest jeweler in Switzerland", this is from the site that I visited, but I believe your information is correct.
    Can you tell me anythining about the moon phase mechanism in it and how does it work?
    Thanks!

    It will almost certainly be the standard 29.5 day moonphase (a two moon disk with one rotation per 59 days). This is off about one day every 32 months. I presume that one of the extra crowns (the one at 4:00 may be a replacement by the looks of it) operates the moonphase quickset - and the other the day-of-the-week. To be certain of that, you need to find info on the movement.

    Being the biggest jeweler in Switzerland does not make Christ automatically a Swiss company. Christ is a German company under the umbrella of the Douglas Holding, also located in Hagen, Germany.

    Yes, that crown looks different. I have never had such a watch before.
    Thank you for the education.
